Is that possible in further versions to allow resize the Search / Replace dialog? Sometimes we have a large amount of text and its hard to use it. We have to open another text editor like notepad, type the text and than put it back on dialog.
I do agree, with you, that if we could resize the Find/Replace dialog, typing in the Find what and Replace with zones will be easier ! An other nice feature would be the possibility to change the font and/or its size, in these zones :-)
But, why you bother to use traditional Notepad, to build your Search or Replace text ? Just use our loved editor to do so !
Sometimes, when I create complex regular expressions, where position and form of every character is important, I simply zoom in the display of text, with some CTRL + Numeric pad key + So, It's very easy to detect an invalid form !
Then, when I think that my regex seems OK ( Be quiet, It's NEVER the case, at first time ! ) :
I copy my regex with CTRL + C , WITHOUT including the EOL characters \r\n , at the end of the line
I open the Search / Replace / Find in Files dialog with the CTRL + F, CTRL + H or CTRL + SHIFT + F shortcut
I paste the regex, in the right zone, with the CTRL + V shortcut
